romney head to key battleground states today after having their say at their first face-to-face debate. an exclusive cbs 5 surveyusa poll of adults in california shows that 48% believe romney won compared with 34% for president obama. 18% felt there was no clear winner. last night's forum in colorado focused mainly on the economy and other domestic issues. that debate took place at the university of denver, colorado being a big swing state in this election, as well. the focus of the debate was the economy. but big bird somehow got into the dialogue there. and, of course, as we mentioned, there were some polls that showed that romney came out ahead of the president on that first debate. bigad shaban joins us live from denver with some highlights from last night. [ pause ] >> reporter: good morning. it seems mitt romney may have got the boost he was hoping for after putting the president on the defensive all night. romney you wanted to his own successes as massachusetts governor but highlighted what he called the failed promises of the obama administration. >>> reporter: the first presid
was enduring the debate rather than fighting it. romney, on the other hand, came in with a campaign. he had a plan. he was going to dominate the time. he was going to be aggressive. he's going to push the moderator around, which he did effectively. he was going to relish the evening enjoying it. the latest thing we got from romney because he said so is you know what i want to do with people when they're poor? shove them into the emergency room. why didn't obama say that? you talk about social security and medicare people, they're part of your 47%. you want to drop them from the list of eligible americans. you don't have any care for these people. what are you talking about? we've got it on tape, governor. we've got it on tape what you think of these people. don't come out here and pretend you care about old people because you met somebody at some campaign event. you've written off 47% of the country before you even started. where was obama tonight? romney, i loved the split screen. staring at obama. addressing him. like the prey. he did it just right. i'm coming at an incumbent. i've got to
to prepare for this debate as governor romney. we don't know exactly how much less time he has had, because the campaign doesn't tell us how much time he spends practicing. they like us to think it is very little time, indeed. what we do know is that he is holed up at a westin hotel outside of las vegas with his top aides and with massachusetts senator john kerry, playing romney in mock debates. kerry knows romney well. they are long-time massachusetts politicians and, of course, kerry knows his way around a presidential debate because he went up against george w. bush in 2004. the reason the obama campaign is working so hard to play down expectations is because they like the trajectory of the race right now and don't want to do anything to change that. norah and charlie? >> no doubt. nancy cordes, thank you. both sides are trying to lower expectations for the debate. any misstep has the potential to derail a campaign. and both candidates have both good and bad moments from their debate history. >> john, you're absolutely right that presidents have to be prudent in what they say. but, you k
romney has something to celebrate. in a cnn poll, 67% said romney won the first presidential debate. 25% think president obama was the victor. >> there were no real knockout punches thrown last night, more like a series of glancing blows with romney the aggressor on taxes, jobs, health care. putting the president really on the defensive. we're lucky to be joined by dana bash. >> i think you're right. it was a debate between a rusty president obama and a well rehearsed mitt romney. >> reporter: right out of the gate, it was clear, mitt romney came to play. >> the president has a view very similar to the view he had when he ran four years ago that a bigger government, spending more, taxing more, regulating more, if you will, trickle down government would work. >> reporter: president obama sounded a familiar alarm, warning of romney's been there, done that economics. >> the approach that governor romney is talking about is the same sales pitch made in 2001 and 2003. and we ended up with the slowest job growth in 50 years. >> reporter: but whether it was health care, jobs, or medicare, it w
>>> romney's reform. as he prepares to debate domestic issues with president obama, mitt romney says he would allow some young illegal immigrants to stay in the u.s. >>> loose landings. two american airlines jets in three days are diverted after passenger seats come loose mid flight. >>> and striking abilities. there's more than meets the eye about this inspiring star of an online video. >> my disability doesn't define who i am. my disability gives me a challenge every day. captioning funded by cbs >>> good morning, everybody. good to be with you. immigration reform will likely be one of the key issues at tomorrow's debate between president obama and mitt romney. mitt romney says he'd honor work permits issued to young illegal immigrants issued by president obama. until now he hadn't said how he would address that issue. susan mcginness is covering it in washington. >> reporter: these are two-year work permits for these young people. romney says before they expire, he will put in a comprehensive immigration reform plan. the question now is will he give details on that at tomorro

these are the things mitt romney needs to do in order to be competitive in the debate. apparently he read it. much more to come >> of course, he did. i'm sure. that's like first thing in the morning. >> on the fashion front, mr. brown said that barack obama's tie was not the right shade and american flag lapel pin was smaller than mitt romney's not a good sign. thought tie was fine. i think the think was that mitt romney did so well. >> i would agree with you. there it was interesting, is listened to half of -- i licensed to half of it. it was a different perception than when you watched it on television. >> it looked like mitt romney was schooling him, which didn't look flattering. >> considering most people get impressions from visuals, substance takes a backstage. >> we have a lot to come in next half hour. >> tragedy at a church of all places. what led to a bay area accident that took the life of a young girl. was one forever.

presidential debate is in the books. the consensus was that mitt romney desperately needed a strong showing. and as grace lee shows us, he pretty much delivered. >> reporter: the polls show that the former governor knocked it out of the park. 500 uncommitted voters asked who won this debate. 46% said it was romney. only 20% said the president was the victor for the night. the man who has been fighting to show that he relates to the average american this whole election cycle, 56% of those polled say they had a better opinion of the former governor now. what started out as cordial quickly became heated. >> governor romney's proposal that he's been promoting for 18 months calls for a $5 million tax cut. and he is saying that he is going to pay for it by closing loopholes in deductions. the problem is, he's been asked over 100 times how you would close those deductions and loopholes and he hasn't been able to identify them. >> everything you just said about my tax plan is inaccurate. so if the tax plan he described were a tax plan i was asked to support, i would say absolutely not. i'm not look
the challenge mitt romney faces against president obama, the clearest shift from the debates came in the 2000 race pitting governor george w. bush of texas against vice president al gore. it resulted from a rare combination of factors with demonstrating effects on mr. gore's campaign. and i guess the question is, can mitt romney pull something that would really kind of just give people a page-turner on, a, his personality, which he doesn't appear to really have one beyond being a really nice person. no, i'm serious. he has to show empathy and sympathy and a connection with people that he hasn't up until now. or, steve rattner, to be more specific about his policies, which many argue he hasn't been very specific nor paul ryan. >> he hasn't been very specific. but i think his bigger problem is the first one you said. that he's got to create some sense of connectivity or relationship with the voters. i think that's really his goal as well as what we were talking about in the earlier segment of trying to bring a clear depiction of obama's policies and the fact they haven't done everything they we
